Sounds silly, but that’s actually life changing advice.
As a World Changer you have a LOT on your plate (oh, the puns are starting early!) Sure, when you think of your dreams, they’re delicious to you and you want go after them all in one big bite. Full steam ahead, give me all the dreams at once. It’s like me with a bag of chocolate covered pretzels. I want all of them, in my belly. NOW.
Since you’re smart and savvy you absolutely know how to get what you want. Whether it’s driving to Trader Joe’s and spending your hard earned cash on a bag of milk chocolate covered mini pretzels… you know… for example, OR it’s starting your blog, launching your website and creating your YouTube channel to get your message out in the world, YOU, unlike most, know how to move the needle forward on your dreams.
The only issue is you tend to take some really big bites out of life, which can leave you overwhelmed, your scheduled overstuffed, which can lead to you feeling sick and immobile (cut to you burned out on the couch, “enjoying” a Keeping Up with Khardashians marathon cuddled with your bag of chocolate covered pretzels… you know…. for example).
Guess who’s not making a difference in the world at THAT point?
So while the life you’re creating (or dream of creating) is Soooo Yummy you can barely stand it, taking one bite at at time is really the best way to go about it.
What does that look like in the real world (so we can lay this tired analogy to rest, already).
It looks like you, mapping out your short term and long term goals and seeing where they fit into your life.
So if you want to start a blog, and you want a speaking career AND you want a Podcast. What do you do first? What do you research first? What do you hire out? What can you do today? What can be the project you start a year from now and in the meantime focus on the stepping stones that build up to it now? Do you want the Podcast to help you launch your Speaking career or do you want your Blog to establish your platform to launch your Podcast? It’s really up to you, but there is an orderly way to go about things.
That way, you can be effective in your execution without feeling scattered, overwhelmed and stuffed to the brim with “things to do”.
